Okay, I feel stupid. I've already googled it. I'm trying to hack computers in Deus Ex...logically, I've upgraded my computer skills. I've read that once you are trained in the computer skill, you are given the option to hack computer terminals when you access them, yet, I am not given that option after training in computer. Is there something I'm missing? :?

See the button in the upper right hand corner labeled "ICEbreaker"? Click that. The computer is now hacked (although note that you only have a limited amount of time to get stuff done when using this method before you set off an alarm).

when you have spent point in the hackingskill, there is a butten on the right hand corner of the monitor you are hacking,, likely called "icepick" If I remember correctly, just push that, hacking is automatic ^^ but the time it takes, leaves so much less time for you to use the system, before an alarm goes off, or the system shuts down.

Edit: oh right it was called ICEbreaker ^^ been too long since I playied it last... must... resist... temptation...
